Bridging the gap with an app, Piota currently works with over 350 schools globally to help schools to be more effective in engaging, communicating and promoting their educational value to parents.
Being specialists in the development of native school Apps, we recognise the link between parental engagement and pupil recruitment, achievement and retention. Moving beyond simple website replication, a fully branded school App is the future for this engagement and is easy to use, affordable, effective and enhances marketing and communication.
The main benefits of the App are to ensure:
integrated social media, news feeds and multiple school calendars
engagement with school forms and surveys
Through a user-friendly Content Management System, schools can easily tag notifications to reach all parents, alternatively they can target specific parents based on year group, club, social events etc.
Likewise, parents have the flexibility to choose which news streams they view, opting to view all notifications or to personalise the App to push information which directly relates to their child, on or offline.
With a free, no-obligation trial, each school App is fully branded and is listed individually in the app stores.
As part of our commitment we provide ongoing updates, and continual professional guidance and support.
